ABS-CBN Foundation Pays Tribute to Earth Warrior and Fearless Leader Gina Lopez

“What does Gina Lopez mean to you?” they asked on social media, in commemoration of the environmentalist and philanthropist’s second death anniversary

When Gina Lopez passed away in August 19, 2019, she left behind a lasting legacy of service. 


The philanthropist, environmentalist, and humanitarian was known for her “unyielding determination to make a difference in people’s lives,” spearheading various programs like Bantay Bata, the rehabilitation of the Pasig River, the reforestation of the La Mesa watershed, and more. Educational shows such as Sineskwela, MathTinik, Bayani, Hiraya Manawari, and Epol Apol are Gina Lopez's brainchildren, too.


It was also her mission to protect the environment and natural resources while giving livelihoods to Filipinos.


She was a light in this world, and her absence remains deeply felt even two years after.
